Race, Gender, and Citizenship in Brazilian Cinema – Book Launch and Signing

By LACSI on February 18, 2015 in
February 27, 2015 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute Conference Room
The University of Georgia
290 South Hull Street, Athens, GA 30605

Dr. Richard Gordon, Director of the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Institute, will discuss his new book Cinema, Slavery, and Brazilian Nationalism (University of Texas Press) in conversation with Dr. Leslie Marsh (Georgia State University), author of Brazilian Women’s Filmmaking: From Dictatorship to Democracy (University of Illinois Press). Their dialogue will focus on how Brazilian film has engaged with questions of race and gender, helping to forge national communities but also highlighting the historical exclusion of women and Afro-Brazilians from full social and political participation. The conversation will be followed by a book signing; books by both authors will be available for purchase.Unknown
